in the senate, democrats and republicans who want to see us get beyond the ranting and the raving that's been going over the last several months and sit down and get this job done. >> i spoke with pat leahy today, i spoke with barbara boxer, i feel the intensity and the passion with all of you, god bless you for the work you're doing, we're looking at pictures right now just outside the john f. kennedy library. you referred to ted kennedy as your brother and we know how close you guys were, when he made that phone call to you and asked you to take the reins of this committee, what was that like. >> well, it was a tremendous honor. look, we have sat next to each other for a long time, so the friendship went beyond just the personal relationship we have had with each other, and he's been a terrific friend. when my daughter was born, the first call i get is from teddy. coming out of prostate surgery two weeks ago, the first call they get is from teddy. and he asked me to fill in for him here on that committee that he's run so beautifully and well through the years. we got a bill done, it was the
's not conservative. it doesn't maintain our society, that doesn't hold us together. that's insurrectionist, and if that's what conservatism is today, they have it wrong. there is a difference between being a revolutionary and a conservati conservative, there just is. >> i think you're absolutely right. >> thank you very much. jonathan martin, and ann cornfield. join us tomorrow at 5:00 and 7:00 eastern for more "hardball." right now time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >> i'm ed schultz. 6 this is "the ed show." good evening, americans. live from 30 rock in new york, it's "the ed show." i want to see the president get hands on the cia prisoner abuse scand scandal. in president, now is not the time to cower to those folks. we're loaded up on the story with two top judiciary committee members. join me in just a moment. >>> plus, guess who is moving into the neighborhood? moammar gadhafi. residents in engelwood, new jersey, not happy who comes to dinner. we'll have the neighbor at the back of the hour to tell us what he really thinks. >>> and rnc chairman michael seale lands in psycho talk
the results later on in the program. joining me now is congressman jim moran. great to have you with us tonight. >> it's always good to be with you, ed. >> what do you make of tom daschle being invited over to the white house today. is this a signal that the president may be ready to make a decision on the public option and draw the line in the sand? what's your take on that meeting? iechlt i have no idea what tom told the president, ed. i hope he didn't suggest that we compromise because listening to the beginning of your show, i completely agree with you. this thing doesn't work unless we have a public option. any more than the military care of veterans works without the federal government taking on the responsibility to make sure that every veteran gets medical care that we need. same thing with medicare. it wouldn't have worked if we had come up with some kind of nonprofit cooperative based upon seniors getting together and pooling their resources. when something is important enough, the american people need to get together, get the resources of their government in there and do it r
organization that's free of the al qaeda that attacked us 9/11 and then come home? >> i mean, how do you trust that? how do you trust that you're making a deal with this -- i mean, essentially we already consider them a terrorist organization. these are guys in the last two days cut off women's index fingers for voting in the elections. do you really want to be making any kind of deals with these guys, and would they really honor them? that's part of the problem in afghanistan is that so many of these people are just so -- the country is so underdeveloped, and there's just no education. you'd have to spend so many years just pouring resources in to develop the country to the point where you could really leave it stabilized. that's really what makes for the quagmire there. >> it seems like to me, chris, that afghanistan is becoming our northwest territory, like it is to pakistan. the ungovernable part of the world we have to continually go in and beat the hell out of it. >> that's the problem, chris. the idea of an open-ended commitment with an uncertain number of troops. if possibly that is ex
in this country. tonight we go to senator bradley. great to have you with us tonight, sir. >> good to be with you, ed. >> he was a courageous man and through his career cast a lot of votes that were unpopular at the time. one of them was the war vote. he was one of 23 senators that said no to the war in iraq. did it always just kind of work out that way? did he like being the dissenting voice? did he see that was his role? >> no. i think he was that rare politician that didn't see principle and pragmatism as a conflict, and he knew that he wanted to be true to himself, and therefore when he was out on the floor making a speech like you just heard, that was him being true to himself. >> he was a fighter, wasn't he? i spoke with a number of labor leaders today and they said he was the best friend labor ever had in this country. what about that? >> well, so often in politics off record and on occasion you die verge on that record for any number of reasons. but he was someone you could count on if you were organized labor or if you were minorities or if you were a working person. >> senator bradley,
of people who were there in constitution hall, who were with us in reserve, louisiana, actually wanted to have a dialogue. wanted to get information. wanted to know what really was going to happen. and hopefully that will be a continuation, that members of congress see as they come home over recess. as i said, there is no more important conversation. and frankly, the notion that somehow the status quo is okay so we can yell and scream and drive out the real important facts of what reform looks like, how it will impact people who currently have coverage, who now are terrified that they're going to be dropped next week or next month. i can't tell you the number of people who talk to me and say, you know, i had coverage but when i got sick, the company told me that i would no longer be covered. i have a great friend whose son was in the hospital as a young dad, had emergency surgery, and got the notice while he was in the hospital that his insurance policy would be dropped for himself and his family. we helped him get it straightened out. but that's happening all over america. and it just
's prescription for real health care reform. good to have you with us tonight. >> ed, tell us how you really feel about this? >> well, i feel it's time to fish or cut bait. i feel the republicans have staked their claim. no to public option, no to co-op, which i think is a joke any way, but when is the president going to realize the republicans aren't serious about reform, and i would like ewe to speak to that. >> act actually, let me say two things. i think the events of thf weekend were defining in the sengs that the republicans made it clear they have no interest in helping in any way to pass health care reform that's a pattern of theirs. they used it against bill clinton but they used it against barack obama. i don't think any voted for the stimulus bill in the house and maybe one or two in the senate. the president knows how to get big legislation passed the congress. although the american people would like bipartisanship, the republicans are not inclined to do that so we're on our own. that's a good thing. now we can get down to business of seriously drafting a bill that will work. this is
that they used in new hampshire. actually, the computer system that they're going to use again tomorrow in grand junction, colorado. but one of the other things i want to bring up here is there were a couple of things that stuck out to me just on the political front. number one is you saw the president ramp up some campaign rhetoric. he almost was trying to sell the audience. i need your help. i got to get you knocking on doors. i got to get you fighting -- he called it fighting the fear. obviously these references to the myths. he also decided to play media critic. he sort of criticized all the cable television for how they've been covering the town halls. and he thanked the one questioner who was clearly an opponent of what he was doing. thanked him for the tone that he took. and then the third thing that i think people ought to take away from this is, i lost count at five the number of personal references to max baucus, the senate finance committee chair. it clears. there may have been about 1,500 people in that audience. in some ways it might have been an audience of one as far as the presid
to these meetings? >> i don't know, and that's the problem. these used to be really important journalistic exercises, going to the town hall meetings in august. you did get a feeling of what congressmen and women are hearing in their districts. how much of this is manufactured and how much of it is authentic. it's hard for lawmakers to tell. because they're going home and trying to spend a month. they're looking at the same polls we are and trying to figure out where exactly are our constituents. and i don't think that they know. and now basically, i think the media rewards the absurd. so people who can shout down, who can scream at a congressman or do something to disrupt, they know people can get on youtube, and therefore, they can make a big show of it and there's a huge incentive to do that. and now you see democrats fighting back, to do the same thing to counter-act that. >> this is the newest, hottest summer reality show for a lot of political insiders to watch. what's interesting is that i think the white house and its organizing arm, the dnc and organizing for america, they were a little slo
. the republican job is to drive useful messages. >> thank you. tony blankley, one of the most honorable republicans i know but still can't admit what the truth is in this debate. join us tomorrow for more "hardball." right now it's time for the "ed shultz show" with ed shultz. >> i'm ed shultz. this is the "ed show." good evening, americans. live from 30 rock in new york, it's "the ed show" on msnbc. tonight, believe it or not, it's democrats versus democrats in the heartland over health care. a key ally in the fight joins me in just a moment. also, ohio senator sharrod brown just wrapped up a huge town hall. he'll tell us if the dumber than joe the plumber crazies showed up and are they really going to stop real reform in this country. and a ron paul supporter showed up at a new hampshire rally with a loaded gun. the congressman will join us and give his take however people will go in this live free or die motto. the atf says the only thing a new movement is lacking is a spark. we'll show you the dangers and who these folks are and where they are. plus karl rove firing squad? ah-ha. ne
in front of us. people have legitimate december agreements how to deal with them. we're not getting to them because one guy is shouting so 200, 300 people can't get their questions answered. history is not written by guys in that team. history is written by people who really engage in their democracy in the way it should. i kind of welcome it. i welcome the passion, that we can figure out a way to let everyone have their say, i think they're going to wind up with a better product. >> the "new york post" has a report that you had a meeting of some kind with constituents in new york city, and the way you did it they say is that you just didn't announce it ahead of time so the nuts like this couldn't go and disrupt it. is that the way to do this? >> that's funny, somehow the "new york post" knew to go there. >> i was wondering about that part. >> if we were trying to hide it, inviting the press to come by was a strange way to do it. no, we did -- >> did you schedule it late? did you schedule it at the last minute? >> no. we went to a neighborhood senior center as part of a tour i'm doing all a
clear, those of us who believe in national health care, believe in lowering our tax burd burden, is that approximated obama, if he's not going to support the public plan, he's not going to get a bill. >> if he doesn't, he's flip-flopping. if he backs off on public option, that's not the guy that liberals elected. i can tell you what my vade i don't show there's a lot of people that are very upset. they feel they're being thrown under the bus. a lot of people who supported this president to get elected all of a sudden are saying, what the heck is going on here? you can't have reform unless you have a public option. you can't challenge the insurance industry unless you have a government-run plan. and now we're kicking around this thing about co-ops. the senate's not going to go with a public option. how would a co-op fly with you? >> it wouldn't achieve anything. it would be a very nice idea, that if we all wanted to get together as citizens and negotiate for lower prices. we could have done that yesterday. that's not going to happen. the public plan is so important to those of us
for joining us tonight. >> thank you. >> you bet. >>> coming up, the candidate who revolutionized grass roots support is now having a tough time connecting with the people who put him in the oval office. has he turned that around? we'll find out what he did today to try to win back those supporters and assure them that everything's okay. the founder of the huffington post will be joining us. he ran off with his secretary! she's 23 years old! - oh, come on. - enough! you get half and you get half.

of health care reform. linda, good to have you on tonight. will you tell us that you understand, or maybe you don't, i don't know, the confusion that has been out there with the conflicting sound bites that we've gotten in recent days? what about that? >> i got to tell you, ed, i don't think there was anything inconsistent in those two sound bites that you just played. what the president said is that it is very, very important to have an insurance exchange. an insurance exchange is a marketplace for people who don't have health insurance, are underinsured, may work for a small business. not the majority of people who have insurance from work already. but the group of people who need to have access to affordable health care options. and on that -- the reason we want that insurance exchange is it's going to lower costs, it's going to increase competition and choice. those are the goals. that's the reason that the president likes the public option. because he thinks it would achieve those goals. that is all of health reform? no. health insurance reform is going to give you protections that y
for us. clair mccaskill having to tell people to be quiet. the president of the united states says, is there anybody out there who's suspicious approximate this? about this? he's asking for someone to sort of come -- in truth the person who stood up was not exactly, you know, someone -- these angry mobs we've seen. melin melinda's exactly right, the disconnect i was really, really struck by. >> specter looked pretty good, surprisingly good, just standing there, taking it, you know. trying to put his point across but standing up to the angry mob looks a lot better. >> he's a great argument for american health care, i'll tell you that, look at this guy. he's 80 years old going head to head with this guy. anyway, chris cillizza, a charming event. melinda, you're the best. "politicsdaily.com. >> politicsdaily.com. join us tomorrow night 5:00 and 7:00 eastern for more "hardball." right now it's time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> i'm ed schultz. this is "the ed show." good evening, americans. live from 30 rock in new york, it's "the ed show" on msnbc. the president headed to the
will be with us throughout the evening. we continue now with your special coverage. >> for the third time, the nation mourns a kennedy brother, the first two crystalline memories of our youth, vivid, horrid, wrapped in the curse and the blessing of the inevery tanlt of a man, loan of the kennedy men to grow old in the service of his nation, not reaching the presidency, nor cut down with it nearly in his grasp, but content and every increasingly so, with a hand more of influence and shaping than of pomp and grandeur, nearly half a century in the senate of this land. whom the philosopher might have been thinking when he wrote, if thou workest at that which is before you, seriously, vigorously, calmly, without allowing anything else to distract him, but keeping the divine part for sure. if thou holdest to this, expecting nothing, fearing nothing, if thou satisfied with the current treatment. thou will live happy and there is no man who's able to prevent this. this is msnbc's live coverage of the memorial service for senator edward m. kennedy. 24 hours, people by the tens of thousands made th
this country during the election by talking in loftier terms, tried to bring us toward or better angel and talk about what's good for the country. in fact, his approach in the last few weeks has been about you, what's in it for you? he hasn't really appealed to the country to say, look, this is not about your health insurance. this is about what what is best for the country, what is best for 46 million people without insurance. what is right or moral about our -- about reforming the health care system. instead he's had these little fights -- these are skirmishes instead of the big, broad battle he should be waging. >> jonathan, next week he'll have a conference call with some religious leaders, what do you make of that? that is playing to the moral fiber of the country, is it not? >> right. i think maybe that's when he gets his footing. it's a very interesting battle with the evangelicals. they're pressing the idea that this is going to fund abortions, this is going to do euthanasia. they're playing small -- the evangelicals who oppose it are playing small boar on it. obama will try to play big
, they wouldn't still be trying to get republicans. they're really using the republicans for cover. right now the president is trying and failing to win republicans looks much better than the president trying and failing to win all of his democrats. joining me now, new jersey senator robert menendez, member of the senate financial committee. senator menendez, let's go back to basics here. we're getting a feeling already for some leaks about what's coming out of the committee, and consistent with all the other committees, what seems to be coming out of the senate finance committee is not universal coverage. what happened to universal coverage. each one of these bills out of the committees does no better than get to 95% coverage some years down the road, leaving tens of millions of people without health insurance. >> well, our goal is universal coverage. however, you have to pay for that as well, and part of the challenge is finding the pay for trying to assure all of that. clearly we'll be at a point at the end of the road. you know, everybody is looking at these individual bills and making th
of a new president, either you do this or don't come back to us for the money and don't come back to us for the support. do you think this kind of stuff could have an impact on the whole process? >> well, yeah, i do, ed, think there is more pressure now for a public plan within the party and around the country than there was before. i think that we who are progressive who really want health care reform have to be able to keep several ideas in our heads at the same time. on the one hand agree with you the plan would be a lot better with a public option in it. president obama made a mistake when he started negotiating himself in the public with it. he caused a lot of trouble he didn't need to cause but did help set off this movement. i think there are a couple problems here. one is we're talking so much about the public plan or public option that we have said, yes, it should be in or no -- you know, we're against those who don't want it. i think a lot of people out there still don't know what's in that public option. >> e.j., here's where they are. pre-existing conditions, gone. everybody

(announcer) he's sweet. even with one third less sugar than soda. kool-aid. delivering more smiles per gallon. >>> one apparent success of the obama's administration to pull the country out of the recession is the cash for clunkers program which gives consumers up to $4500 in credit to trade in old cars for more fuel efficient ones. it's become so popular that the $1 billion set up for it was used in the first week of the progra
should use the health committee bill, which is mainstream, democratic bill, mainstream american bill, and begin to move it through the senate. >> but we won't get into it now, but, you know, there's all sorts of jurisdictional problems since your committee has no jurisdiction over medicare, it could be a unique approach to the senate floor to try to go down there without the senate finance committee having exercised its jurisdiction first, wouldn't it? >> i know you worked on that committee and you're right about that. but the house of representatives has dealt with all aspects of this through their three different committees. once the bill gets to conference committee, we can work a lot of it out, so it has -- it's a bill similar to health combined with some of the stuff in the house. that's too much inside baseball, but we need the finance committee to do something, but they've got to put out something by -- beginning on september 15th if they can't get republicans to go along. they may get olympia snowe, well, because she's more of a moderate. but enzi and grassley are much more c
